A large part of the 'Langford Tales' project has been searching for and acquiring archive. This has been done with the assistance of Linda Franklin.

The material has come in various forms. Over a thousand photographs - some almost 100 years old - have been handed over to us for use in the film.

These have been gifted by local families and the 'Langford and District History Society' generously opened up their vaults to help us bring the stories to life.
